This is the seventh year Digby Brown Solicitors has held a Head Injury Information Day in Glasgow, and this year saw hundreds come along to learn more about brain injury and the support available locally and nationally.

“Thank you all for organising all of this!”

“You put on a magnificent event once again and we were delighted to be part of it on the day. The number of people who spoke to us throughout the day was definitely more than in past years and the spread of exhibitors and attendees was impressive.

“Personally I usually miss most of the presentations due to manning the stall, but this year what I saw was particularly good and the service user session was beyond anything I have ever seen or heard before! John, Julie and Steven were WONDERFUL!

“It rekindled enthusiasm into a good few seasoned workers, including myself, very much reminding us why we’re involved and the importance of keeping on fighting for head injury services, but most of all it was a privilege to see the three of them speaking!

“So many exclamation marks, but HIIDS was wonderful, thank you!!!!!!!”
